Jodi Ewart

jodi ewart pics

Jodi Ewart is a sophomore on the University of New Mexico women's golf team. Jodi's freshman season (2006-07) was one of the best in school history. She set a school record for scoring average; won the Mountain West Conference championship tournament and had six other Top 10 finishes; was named conference Freshman of the Year; MWC co-Player of the Year; and was named to All-America teams by the National Golf Coaches Association of America and by Golfweek magazine.

A psychology major, Jodi is from England and has won plenty of big amateur tournaments in the UK. Among those titles are wins at the Girls Home Internationals (twice); the Ladies Home Internationals and the England Northern Ladies Championship; and her biggest win to date, the 2007 English Women's Strokeplay Championship.

While Jodi continues her career at New Mexico as one of the top collegiate golfers in America, expect to see more of her in international competition, too. She should be a lock for the Great Britain & Ireland team in the Curtis Cup at St. Andrews in 2008.

  • She's a snow skier, cyclist and is taking up tennis
  • And MJ loves to dance. She'll be taking salsa classes soon, saying, "Salsa helps me discover a new me, moving my lower body which in golf you are a lot more static!"

Anna Rawson on the Red Carpet

Here's the lovely and talented Anna Rawson on the red carpet prior to the 2007 ESPYs in Hollywood.

This is a big time for Anna. She played on the Ladies European Tour in 2007, but is chasing her LPGA Tour card for 2008. Anna will be playing the final-stage LPGA qualifier beginning Nov. 28, and we certainly wish her many birdies.

Our friends over at oobgolf recently conducted an interview with Ms. Rawson. You can read it here.

"Paula Creamer Bikini"? No, Paula Creamer Calendar

paula creamer bikini

My site stats show tons of people searching lately for "Paula Creamer bikini." What's up with that? As far as I can tell, Paula has not done any bikini shoots. Sorry guys. But hey, we can always hope, right?

But Paula's 2008 calendar is now for sale. The calendar is done for Golf Digest Japan and is only for sale through GDJ's Web site (although we have spotted it on eBay once or twice, too). Not being able to read Japanese, I can't determine whether the calendar can even be purchased by anyone outside of Japan. But if you want to try, the Golf Digest Japan Paula Creamer 2008 Calendar page is here.

Momoko Ueda

Momoko Ueda is a player to watch, and we might just get to see more of her next year after she won the LPGA Mizuno Classic. Ueda is a member of the Japan LPGA. She's just 21 years old, but now that she's won an LPGA tournament, she gains fully exempt status on the U.S. tour for 2008.

Golf Digest World Ladies Calendar

golf digest japan world ladies calendarTo the right is a thumbnail of the cover of the 2008 Golf Digest World Ladies Calendar. This is a calendar that is produced yearly by Golf Digest Japan and is, unfortunately, available only in Japan. Well, perhaps some other parts of the Far East, too, but not in the U.S. or Europe.

The golfers featured in the 2008 calendar are Brandi Jackson, Nikki Garrett, Anna Rawson and Tina Miller. Below is a great shot of Tina that is, alas, obscured by a watermark, but gives you an idea of the classy way these four beautiful women are pictured in the calendar:

Sydnee Michaels

Back by popular demand, it's Sydnee Michaels. Sydnee grew up on the golf courses and beaches of Southern California, so it's no surprise she's at home in a place like Hawaii. Michaels, a sophomore on the UCLA women's golf team, was in the islands with the team to take part in the Kent Youel Invitational tournament, hosted by the University of Hawaii. UCLA won the tournament, and Sydnee finished 10th in the individual standings.
